DIY Granddad (w/help)
Most are not.......The guy's not a bandit. He's been in the business for 25 years, and has done this exact thing I want for years. He said he first started out with Goo Screen, but wasn't satisfied with them.
BM is good......and the PPG Diamond is also an excellent Acrylic Latex....with a higher proportion of Acrylic. Most Primer / Paints fall squarely into that description, and before they were called "Primer / Paints" they were more commonly known as "Interior Water-Based Enamel" Lost of vetting and tests has been done using the Diamond (...back when it was labeled "Glidden" and it was adjudged the most Neutral White with the highest Gain in a Matte White of everyone else. So it got my vote, and still has it as the same labeled PPG Product.Benjamin Moore is good quality paint, better than PPG?
I use the Ultra White PPG Diamond as the undercoating for all my SF / BF screens.
Yeah....hard to beat that price-wise. But using anything else but what is suggested by the many past successes (w/ known values and performance) and YRMVWGuy said he'd do it for $50 including paints. How can I complain about that? All he needs is Gennex codes. He's doing this as a favor from a friend of mine.
Nope...it's a Custom Color...but I have had many members use it for both Screen Base w.High Lumen PJs, and as a great Dark Grey for a Ceiling Color. Much better looking than Black.He can also use a paint chip. So if you don't know the Gennex code system, no biggie. I guess spending $4 for a sample isn't terrible.
Those look like Behr color codes. So it seems Home Depot has a Behr color machine that it uses for their PPG color matching. Your can says PPG. I just called up Home Depot, and the paint person said the ppg-53-120 is the PPG color, and those amounts are for Behr.
So Home Depot has to convert their PPG brand paints to Behr. They're only able to match a PPG to Behr, because they have a licensing agreement with them. Other dealers like for Sherman Williams, or in my case Benjamin Moore, can't do that.
Yes....HD can take what you provide them and Tint any Gallon whose contents allow for the amount of Tint needed to obtain the level of Grey. Such Base paints as Deep Base have a bit under a Gallon to provide Tint space. The Darker the tint the deeper the Base must be Your Gallon needs a bit of the contents removed. That would be about 117 oz of paint to 11 oz. of the Tints.
